“Fabulous central location”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

This hotel is 45 minutes from Arlanda airport and offers a fixed price taxi. It is located in the centre, around 10 minutes walk from the large concert house, numerous shops / malls, restaurants and banks. The harbour is also close by and it is ideally situated for a city break.

There is a large reception area with a small shop, bar and restaurant. Check in was relatively quick for me but it can get very busy at peak times. The bar is popular with the locals so it gets busy most nights. The hotel has a modern, boutique style and was very busy. It was quite noisy during the evenings and guests did not appear to show any courtesy to other guests when coming and going.

2 lifts adjacent to the reception area go to all floors with a total of 8 floors for rooms. There can be quite a wait for the lifts at busy times. The key card is used for room access and electricity function via a docking station near the door.

Standard room 530 was small but functional with satellite TV and free Wi-Fi access. It would be OK for 1 person but would be cramped for 2 especially for more than 1 -2 nights. Good size bathroom with walk in shower & complimentary toiletries.

Restaurant serves breakfast Monday to Friday 6.30 – 10.30 and Saturday & Sunday 7.30 to 12.30. It is very busy at weekends, you might have to wait to get a table. Self service buffet style, with a wide choice of hot / cold food and beverages.

Staff were very helpful with any queries and spoke very good English. The hotel offers automatic on line or mobile check out and can pre-book taxi services.

I would recommend this hotel as a good base for a city break and a few nights. Not sure about a longer stay if you want to get any sleep.

I stayed in open of the single cabin rooms in the basement and didn't mind at all that there were not windows as it was extremely quiet and I had a great nights sleep. The breakfast is fantastic-many organic items and the location is great. Within walking distance of the harbour but near a quiet park

I stayed four nights here on the fourth floor in Sept 2013. My standard room was spacious and comfortable with many amenities. The included breakfast was great and the onsite restaurant is wonderful. The only issue I had on my trip was the noise. Thurs and Fri there was loud music in the bar that went until midnight Thurs, and 2am Fri. I could hear the music in my fourth floor room. Also there was considerable noise from the street.

Staff was friendly and made me feel welcome and was helpful with directions. Great location walk to everything downtown. Nice room, just wish it was a little quieter for sleeping.

If you want to sleep then forget the hotel. I never have had such a constant noise during the whoe night in a hotel! It sounded like furniture had been moved around. Without cease! The personal couldn't care less about my problem. their comment: it is normal, i should put on ear plugs. It's highly "immoral" to take money for rooms like that. They should decide if they want to run a disco club or a hotel. Both are not possible if you have such poor construction stadard. Never ever!!!!!

Room Tip: Don't choose any!!!

The Scandic Anglais is a good hotel. The location is pretty well perfect for those intrepid travellers that want to have everything available on their doorstep. There are many restaurants within a few minutes walk, so that it is almost impossible to decide where to eat.

The public areas are pretty busy here. It seemed that every time we returned to the hotel after a days work, everyone else had beaten us to the bar. There was a constant beat of music and the bar was crushed with people daring to buy themselves another expensive drink (all drink is expensive in Sweden!).

The room was clean and not too tired. The only complaint was that there was an extractor fan vent in the bed area (of the type typically seen in the bathroom to reduce condensation). This vent was making a particularly loud whistling noise which made getting to sleep very difficult. At around 1am I resorted to wiggling (technical term) the central bit and the whistling did reduce, but it was still noisy. Next morning I requested at the reception desk at they switch it off (as a colleague had done that for his room), but upon my return later that day it still hadn't been done and was not done at all during my stay. The staff really need to make sure that they act upon a guests request.

The breakfast was extensive and very tasty but very busy as it seems everyone gets breakfast included in their room rate, which is good but also not good, if you know what I mean.

Would I stay here again, well the answer is yes, as I will be staying in a weeks time for 4 nights. My first request at check in is to request that the vent system is switched off and this time I will keep bugging them until it does happen

Room Tip: Beware the vent of doom. If noisy request that it is switched off and nag them until it is done!

Do not choose this hotel for big rooms or good facilities. But if you want the best location in Stockholm and you love those hotels where lobby and the lobby bar is crowded and a place even people not living their comes to hang out - This is it!

Stayed here for two nights before a cruise (on them, so their choice). Good location, easy walk to restaurants, tourist attractions. Room was not at all luxurious (no in-room safe, limited closets but quite comfortable and met our needs well. Returned from dinner the first night to some loud music going on in the bar, right below our room--but to our very pleasant surprise, the soundproofing was more than adequate, and it didn't disturb us at all. Excellent buffet breakfast; excellent (and free) wifi in the room. Not sure what the rate would have been if we were paying (but nothing in Stockholm seems to be cheap....)
